Looking to learn something new?
How do I get the prompt() method to ask the user "What day is it?" and store the result in the answer variable?
So the code starts with var answer;
Any answer for this question would be appreciated.
var answer=prompt("what day is it?"); alert(answer);
Your code is actually correct already. The issue is that these challenges are very picky when it comes to text output, strings usually have to match the example provided exactly as shown. You have have not capitalized the first word in the message. If you capitalize it like this:
var answer = prompt("What day is it?");
Then the answer will be accepted.

you generally have to spell and capitalize exactly as they request, so you need to up the w. also they do not ask you to alert anything.
